Tip Top Factory Roof

Climate control though roof coating

This factory in Queensland Australia had been struggling to keep the factory cool and create a pleasant working environment for the employees. Rather than spend thousands on a cooling system that would struggle with the openness of the shed, Tip Top invested in a Nutech Paint coating with heat reflective properties.

Initially, the roof was power washed to remove the dirt and debris that had built up, and rusted spots were treated with NuEcoSafe Rust (available on request). Finally, the entire roof was primed with Nutech Paint’s Metal Primer to create a stable base for top coating.

After preparation, the roof was coating with two coats of NXT Cool Coat in color Wheat high-gloss. The light color and high-gloss combination provides a high TSR and helped to significantly cool the factory. A local contractor completed this job, with specifications and inspections carried out by Nutech Paint.

Letter from the Manager

I would like to take this opportunity in thanking Nutech and the trade contractor for the work that was done restoring the roof of one of our production facilities in2010. Nutech was very helpful and professional in assisting us with the coating aspect of restoring the rood. In the 2 years since the restoration, we have not noticed any significant deterioration in the coating and believe that it will continue to maintain its integrity over the coming years. We have no hesitation is recommending Nutech coatings to other businesses both in Australia and overseas.

Thanks again,

Sasha Pakkiyaretnam
